    Current Employee - CCR 

    I have been working at Ministry of the Attorney General full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pay is good, good benefits, you can literally "get lost" for hours and no one would know or care. I've had colleagues tell me they went to the movies and came back to work to sign out for the day. If you like that sort of thing and have no ambitions of moving up or advancing in your career, this would be perfect for you. I personally don't appreciate that aspect of the job.

    Cons

    I work in court services and most of the staff are either lazy or have become lazy because of the work environment. Some work environments are very toxic. There is a lot of nepotism. It is really difficult to get permanent, unless you know someone. It took me years to work my way into a permanent position. It seems like management is there to help you with your carer growth, but most of them are not happy or support... you leaving for another position. If you can find a job in another ministry, i would say Do It ASAP!
